A fluid displacement pump, also known as transfer pump, helps to displace fluid from the bottom of a polyurethane drum and transfer the fluid to the hose. The pressure created from the fluid transfer pump ultimately provides an even and consistent distribution of material as the material is transferred from the bottom of the barrel to the hose and eventually to the tip of your spray foam gun, where is mixes with a second material - causing it to react.
Is a fluid transfer pump the same as a foam pump, barrel, pump, or drum pump?
Yes. To the new polyurethane applicator, transfer pumps can be confusing. Because they have so many names including; foam pump, barrel pump, drum pump, or fluid displacement pump - sometimes this can lead to confusion. When dealing with industrial materials and high/low pressure hoses, it is important to have an industrial transfer pump, such as the ones made by PMC and IPM. Having the wrong pump can cause you to waste time and money by wasting material and getting an inconsistent application.
